Re: Possible problem with cloned SGC and Minerva 1.98

Definitely (b) and (c) for me - I don't have any working cartridges anymore, and boot directly into SMSQ/E from QL-SD. The only time my SGC has seen itself running Minerva was until the SD card/floppy/QubIDE was set up the first time.

Re: Possible problem with cloned SGC and Minerva 1.98

The following is just a wild guess: Apparently, the problem occurs with both the GC and the SGC (I hope this is verified?) - So I would assume it's not caused by the subtle differences in interrupt handling between the various 68k CPUs. Apparently, it is also not related to the patches done by GC an...

Re: Possible problem with cloned SGC and Minerva 1.98

Well, the bug doesn't necessarily need to be in the patched areas of the ROMs - It could simply be some unfortunate timing on the faster GC and SGC...

Re: Possible problem with cloned SGC and Minerva 1.98

It would probably make sense to compare the original source to a disassembly of that part after patching. No time to do that, atm, though.

Re: Possible problem with cloned SGC and Minerva 1.98

I might be wrong, but when I got my Gold Card (not Super GC) I'm almost certain that the screen address moved from the "standard" address. Is this the case on the SGC as well? You're wrong, unfortunately. The screen address of a BBQL can only be in two places (where the 8301 can actually ...

Re: First attempts to boot my Tetroid GIRL

JM is known to have problems when a Basic program uses extensions it has just loaded (in the same program). That is why you get a "Bad name" for the HISTORY command in line 550 - That toolkit command has just been loaded at line 540. You will get more of these for other extensions you LRES...

Re: USB Floppy Disk Device (Drive) with Support for Windows 10 and QPC2?

My Windows 7 installation used to have (well, still has, as I still keep that laptop) a "NEC"/"NEC USB Floppy Drive" entry when displaying all vendor/driver entries that made my Fuji drive read and write QL disks. A fresh Windows 10 Professional installation doesn't have that dri...

Re: USB Floppy Disk Device (Drive) with Support for Windows 10 and QPC2?

I did a quick check - At least my Windows 10 Installation does seem to no longer hold the NEC floppy disk driver that made my drive work on Win7

Re: Lets get Sir Clive on the new £50 note!!

Just from the top of my head, I'm assuming it's going to be Stephen Hawking who will end up on the note.

No, he's not a woman. But honestly, he's done much more to the overall knowledge of mankind in my opinion than Clive Sinclair has.

Re: GET and BGET from channel

Dilwyn,

When compiling "vanilla QL" programs, I normally link TK2 (or whatever toolkit I use) into the compiled binary - That allows it to run on systems that have no Toolkit on board.
